The Sparrowhawk-HL is a hand-launched version of the (military variant) Sparrowhawk designed primarily for the civil market. The Sparrowhawk-HL is an electric powered-paraglider system with a vertical hanging fuselage. The fuselage design and major component placement allows the Sparrowhawk to fly in a relatively perpendicular flight path (to the ground) in most flight regimes regardless of power input. This along with its consistent center of gravity allows for a very stable aerial platform.
